Page 9 - Razer DeathAdder
If you want the best performance, it's time to gear up. In part two of our gaming accessories roundup, we're checking out the best gaming mice that can give you the killer edge.
Razer’s DeathAdder design has done the rounds. It’s been on the street since 2007, and its form and shape has become familiar to many. But has it been lagging behind in the technology stakes? Not anymore — it’s been given a new lease on life with a new sensor. The superb DeathAdder design has been updated to compete with the current cutting-edge laser mice. It hasn’t changed completely under the hood, as it still uses an infra-red sensor, so it maintains the same feeling as the old model. It’s still one of the most comfortable mice ever, with the soft touch finish, smooth curved design and light press buttons.
It doesn’t overdo itself with endless buttons, limiting it to five. They are all customisable, through software as you’d expect. There’s good news for left handers, with a left handed version of this one sided mouse available. At time of writing, we couldn’t find out if the Aussie stockist keeps both left and right in stock, but if you’re keen enough, you can no doubt find one. If it’s simplicity and performance you’re after, the DeathAdder is the way to go. The bonus is the reasonable price. It also goes to show, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.Available from Razer, retailing for $99.95.APC rating: 8/10 (Highly Recommended)
